Kendra Wilkinson Is “Embarrassed” She Worked As A Stripper & Experimented With Drugs

Kendra Wilkinson former Playboy Playmate pictured above promotes ‘Sliding Into Home’ at Borders Books & Music, Columbus Circle in New York City, NY on July 6, 2010.  Kendra – who worked as a stripper when she was found by Hugh Hefner and asked to be one of his girlfriends – admits she is ashamed about her past, but still maintains she was a "very good person" despite her mistakes.  Speaking on the ‘Today’ show yesterday (06.07.10), she said: "I kind of lost myself for a little bit. I wasn’t a druggie stripper. I was a very good person doing it. But I was kind of still embarrassed about it.   "I always knew that it was wrong. But the drugs and everything, that’s what found me and accepted me."

The 25-year-old beauty – who has six-month-old son Hank Baskett IV with her NFL sportsman husband Hank Baskett – eventually realised the drug-taking wasn’t her and gave up.   She explained: "It took a while. A good couple of weeks to think about, ‘OK, the time is coming. I don’t know when yet. But this isn’t me.’ "   Now those days are behind her, Kendra is thrilled with well she has settled into life as a mother.   She added: "I’ve been through a lot. I’ve gotten through it. I’m home, where I’ve always wanted to be."
